2.  Reader Settings

  • Font Size (coming soon) - Font size can be adjusted on the fly using the options in the bottom, left-hand corner of the reader if desired.  Drag the slider to the left or right to adjust.  Not available in fixed layout books.
  • Mode -  Set a default view mode for the reader.  Three options currently exist:  Day Mode (white background/black text), Sepia Mode (yellowish background/dark redish text), Night Mode (black background/white text).  This can be adjusted on the fly inside the reader. Not available in fixed layout books.
  • Page Layout - Set a default page layout mode for the reader.  One page is the site default.  Two page mode will display two pages side by side and cause the book to look smaller inside the reader.  You may go full-screen to improve this viewing experience.
  • Scroll View -Turn on or off scrolling view.  By default this is turned off and usually more suitable for reading on mobile devices.  This can be adjusted on the fly inside the reader.

3.  Page Tools

  • Use a simple drag and drop interface to turn on and off the page tools, or change the order to best suit your needs.  When you mouse over a page tool, your cursor will change to a cross-hair and you can drag them from left to right, or down into the Inactive section to turn them off.
